How to Accomplish Your Business Goals on Social Media 

When business owners complain that their social media efforts aren't paying off and they just aren't seeing a return on their investment of time, it’s usually because they’re using the Jackson Pollack approach to social – “flinging” paint onto a canvas. There’s no goal behind what they’re doing. It’s random. That approach may create beautiful art, but it rarely works for business.

Whether you are brand new to social media for business or you've been doing it for a while and you're just not seeing the results you want, changing a few simple things can mean a much larger return on investment for you. Stop wasting time and start seeing a return on investment in social media by using these tips:

Applicants completed an exhaustive survey and application this spring to self-report product offerings, annual total and recurring revenues, profits, revenue mix, growth opportunities and company and customer demographic information.

Channel Futures is pleased to name prototype:IT to the 2020 SMB Hot 101.

“We here at Channel Partners and Channel Futures believe that entrepreneurship is the backbone to the American economy, and that the SMB is the lifeblood of the IT channel,” says Kris Blackmon, Senior Content Director at Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “We have worked for over a year to create a program that recognizes those small-but-mighty MSPs that keep our industry strong, healthy and growing, and I am thrilled at the quality of the partner businesses reflected in this inaugural list.”

The data collected by the annual MSP 501 program drives Channel Partners’ and Channel Futures’ market intelligence insights, creating robust data sets and data-based trend reports that support our editorial coverage, event programming, community and networking strategies and educational offerings. It serves as a lynchpin to dozens of programs and initiatives. See full press release here.
